this morning on "world news now" -- the first sighting of paula broadwell since the world found out she is the mistress of former cia director david petraeus. >> we have also learned that broadwell had e-mailed others now involved in the military sex scandal. it is wednesday, november 14th. >>. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now."
>> that's right. broadwell wasn't only e-mailing the other woman in the scandal, jill kelley. good morning, i'm paula faris. we have a couple more layers. >> the other, other woman. get your flow charts out to follow the story, folks. good morning, i am rob nelson. reporters will have a chance to question president obama about the story today. it his first news conference since his re-election. >> as if he doesn't have enough on his plate. right? this half-hour we have reported here about dangers of cheerleading. go team. go, rob. go "world news now." you probably know where we are going with this one. we have the latest example from last night in the nba. pretty horrific to watch. we will tell you exactly -- how this one ended. >> hope she is okay. hope she is okay. we are hearing this morning from paul ryan. he tells our john karl about the shock of last tuesday night and whether president obama now has a mandate to govern in his second term. some interesting comments from the former veep candidate. >> whether or not he is considering 2016. we mentioned the guy the voice of elmo yesterday in "the skinny," well a distinctly adult story involving a children's character with new developments. stay with us for that.
>> we begin with the first pictures of paula broadwell since it was revealed she did have an affair with david petraeus. broadwell, as you can see here, was seen at her brother's house in washington right there in the window eating and having a little bit of wine. >> we are learning much more about the other woman also at the center of the scandal. we are talking about jill kelley. abc's martha raddatz reports. >> reporter: it is breathtaking. within days, two four-star generals so widely respected in the midst of scandal. first, david petraeus, and now general john allen being investigated for sending what the pentagon said were potentially inappropriate messages. putting on hold his likely pro promotion to become the supreme allied commander in europe. >> of course it weighs on him. as much as it weighs on dave petraeus. i believe that dave is very, very sad for what he has admitted he did.
>> reporter: at the center of this web, jill kelley, the tampa socialite and honorary military ambassador, living near the centcom headquarters, where petraeus and allen were once based. officials say the was early this summer that kelley received anonymous e-mails accusing her of flaunting her friendly relationships with top military brass. the fbi traced those e-mails become to paula broadwell's computer where they discovered the evidence of broadwell's affair with david petraeus. but it doesn't stop there. abc news has learned that general allen also received an anonymous e-mail traced to paula broadwell painting jill kelley as a seductress. a further look by the fbi into kelley's e-mails revealed hundreds between kelley and general allen. 20,000 to 30,000 pages of communications in all. but a source familiar with the e-mails say they contain no evidence of a sexual relationship. supporting what allen says -- instead, they're describeded as
friendly, perhaps flirtatious, but routine. mostly about meetings with ambassadors, dinner parties. in one note, kelley tells the general she saw him on tv. he responds -- thanks, dear, you are a sweetheart. many e-mails from kelley to general allen's wife. the two couples were good friends. >> until anyone proves otherwise, i believe he did nothing inappropriate. >> reporter: and the white house made clear the president still has the faith in general allen. but the petraeus case is an entirely different matter. federal agents descended on the home of his mistress, paula broadwell, gathering more material including a desk top computer. making sure she doesn't hold any classified information. and dave petraeus once such a public hero now forced into the shadows. while there is plenty of anger over petraeus' behavior with paula broadwell, the overwhelming reaction i have heard from troops is one of
sadness mixed with pride for his years of leadership and hardship in the nation's wars. martha raddatz, abc new, washington. and we have also learned that jill kelley tried to claim diplomatic immunity in a complaint call to police about reporters who were on her lawn. >> her license plate does carry the title honorary consul, that was given by the korean embassy and carries no special privileges. we learned that kelley hired a top washington criminal defense lawyer and publicist. but, jill kelley and her husband very good friends with general petraeus and his wife. in reading of the article from "usa today" they said that jill kelley and petraeus they exchange nearly daily e-mails and instant messages. two former staffers told ap. but those messages were exchanged in accounts that aides regularly monitored and they were not romantic in tone as were the messages to general allen. >> a lot of the e-mails from jill to general allen were to general allen's wife.
if there was an affair, would the mistress be e-mailing the wife? there is a reason to perhaps believe there was something more innocent than what was going on with petraeus. an interesting historical footnote here, the lawyer now representing broadwell, the petraeus mistress works for the same firm that represented monica lewinsky. so it gets dirty and interesting and just washington -- uh -- insider stuff all the way around too. you have to wonder, the two guys are busy, running wars, four-star generals, they had that much time for all these little, you know, minutia filled e-mails, 20,000, 30,000,000 over two-year span. two very busy powerful men why are they in communication with a bored socialite what she has been called in tampa. there are still questions here. >> can't be taken down by the most powerful men in the world or terrorists or military, but they can be taken down by women. >> the power of the opposite sex, folks.
